Detention motion: Galena man charged with meth trafficking should be held without bond
Flowers has a prior State of Missouri felony conviction for distribution of a controlled substance and a prior federal conviction for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
In his prior federal case, the United States District Court for the District of Kansas sentenced Flowers to a 20-year term of imprisonment.
Former President Barack Obama commuted Flowers’ sentence, and he was placed on a term of supervised release. While on supervised release, Flowers committed the instant offense.
In the instant offense, law enforcement officers found approximately $2,731 in U.S. currency and 83.1 grams of pure methamphetamine on Flowers’ person. For the reasons set forth above, the United States requests that a detention hearing be held and that the defendant be denied bail.
No date has been set for the hearing.
